The lead grew to 3-0 when Mark Blaney tallied from Gaulin and Adam Schuchart with 5:58 to go in the period.
The Little Bruins ruined goaltender Connor Hasley’s shutout bid a minute later, but the 18U’s responded soon after with a goal by Bollman with help from Zach Whitehead and Farrell.
Farrell made it 5-1early in the third when converted after flying down the right wing. Blaney was credited with the assist.
Chris Dowd rounded out the scoring with help from Lucas Constantine with 4:38 remaining.
“It’s pretty tough to go into an in-between game before a rematch, but we knew we had to play a lot harder, especially against a team like the Little Bruins,” stated Bollman. “Those guys are really talented and moved the puck really well.
“[Hasley] came up big for us and we owe our game to him,” he continued. “We played really well tonight, everybody’s really excited, but we know we have a big one tomorrow.”

Marlboro, MA- Aidan McDonnell scored and Ryan Dailida played a masterful game in net to propel the 16-and-under team to a 1-1 tie in a non-league contest.
Dailida and his Little Bruins counterpart kept the teams off the board for the first period.
Five minutes into the second, Cam Sullivan fired the puck from the point and McDonnell tipped it in to put the 16U’s up 1-0.
The lead lasted going into the final frame, but the Little Bruins tied it up with 14:40 to go in the game.
“The team really started to come together today,” stated Dailida. “I think we were one or two plays away from winning. We seemed to eliminate much of the mistakes we were making earlier in the season.
“We’ve had a big turnaround. Today was a tight game, and we all had to remain focused on the puck at all times. We have something to prove, especially during our rematch with the Senators tomorrow, and we’re all hungry for wins.”
The 16U team takes on the Eastern Mass Senators tomorrow at 4:00 PM in a rematch of last weekend’s game.

Ashburnham, MA- The GBL Boston Jr. Bruins 18-and-under team skated to a hard-fought 3-3 tie against the Eastern Mass Senators at Cushing Academy on Saturday.
The Senators got on the board first with a goal that was redirected past Veeti Kohvakka with 7:33 remaining in the opening period.
Tyler Gaulin tied the game when Paul Doré set him up in the zone and Gaulin wrapped around the net and poked the puck in with 3:51 on the clock.
As the closing seconds of the first period ticked away, the Senators seemed poised to regain the lead, but Kohvakka withstood a barrage of shots before the buzzer sounded.
The second period was more of the same as Kohvakka and his Senators counterpart continually frustrating the players for the majority of the period.
The 18U’s jumped in front with 6:40 to go when Reese Farrell passed from behind the net to Carson Moe in the slot and Moe fired it past the Senators goalie.
The lead, however, did not last, as the Senators tied the game with 2:19 on the clock and grabbed the lead fifty seconds later.
True to form, the 18U’s tied the game again, this time with a goal by Jack Ring assisted by Farrell and Andrew Noel, with 50 seconds before the intermission.
Neither team could break the tie in the final period and the contest ended in a 3-3 deadlock.

Foxboro, MA- The GBL Boston Jr. Bruins went 2-0 on the second day of the Tier 1 Faceoff, notching an overtime win over Mid-Fairfield and finishing with a convincing triumph over the Springfield Pics.
18U 2, Mid-Fairfield 1 (OT)
Tyler Gaulin scored 36 seconds into overtime to give the 18U’s a 2-1 win over Mid-Fairfield in the morning game.
The 18U’s jumped out to an early lead when Reese Farrell sent Grady Friedman a pass across the neutral zone and Friedman stormed in toward the net and slipped the puck past the Mid-Fairfield goalie at the three minute mark.
“I saw their two defensemen watching the puck and saw an opening,” recalled Friedman. “Reese [Farrell] sent me a good pass, I drew the goalie over, and slipped it around him.”
Mid-Fairfield tied the game with 2:38 remaining in the second period, and neither team was able to put another one in during regulation, as Connor Hasley and his Mid-Fairfield counterpart withstood several great chances from both sides.
Gaulin then ended the game after Paul Doré sent him on a breakaway and he converted early in the extra session.
“It was a great win,” noted Friedman. “Tyler [Gaulin] really stepped it up in overtime and scored a huge goal. Their goalie played great. It was tough to get anything around him. We had to really move the puck and try for back door passes, and we weren’t really able to get many of those.”
18U 9, Springfield Pics 1
Liam Walsh netted a pair of goals to lead the 18U’s over the Springfield Pics 8-1 in the afternoon game on Saturday.
Just 1:18 into the contest, Jack Ring and Zach Whitehead set up Bryce Bollman, whose shot slipped past the goalie to open the scoring.

Less than a minute later, Lucas Constantine rang up a shorthanded goal from the boards with an assist from Paul Doré.
With 12:05 on the clock, Ring made it a three-goal game he took a pass from Grady Friedman in the slot and fired it home. Dowd also assisted on the play.
Walsh grabbed his first of the game after pouncing on Teddy Griffin’s rebound, which was set up by Doré with 10:18 to go in the half.
Moe stretched the lead to 6-1 with 2:50 remaining when he scored from the left circle with help from Bollman and Noel.
The score held until about the halfway point when Mark Blaney sent Walsh on a breakaway and Walsh lit the lamp again.
Blaney put the 18U’s up by a touchdown with an unassisted goal with 3:59 to go, and Dowd rounded out the scoring with 48 seconds left when he scored from Ring and Griffin.
Both Veeti Kohvakka and Connor Hasley saw action, with Kohvakka getting the start.

The Bandits drew first blood 3:02 into the game, but Dominic Murphy tied the game with an unassisted tally with 17:30 remaining in the first half.
“After the goal, the coaches told us to forget about it, just stay on them and play our game,” said Aidan McDonnell. “We were more comfortable playing with each other today and got used to each other’s playing styles, and we were able to tie the game quickly.”
Cam Sullivan put the 16U’s in front with 42 seconds on the clock with assists from Aidan McDonnell and Eamon Connaughton.
Damon Alexander stretched the lead to 3-1 when he took a pass in the slot from Luke O’Sullivan and knocked it home with 11:21 left in regulation.

“Today, our mission was to prove that we were a lot better team than how we played yesterday, and it showed in our effort,” stated McDonnell.
16U 2, Palmyra Black Knights 3
The 16U’s bowed to the Palmyra Black Knights 3-2 despite a great effort that saw them controlling the play for much of the game.
Robert Martinello gave the 16U’s an early lead when he scored from the point at the 1:10 mark with assists from Joey Borelli and Dominic Murphy.
Twenty minutes later, the Black Knights tied the score with a power play goal.
Just 1:55 into the second half, Carter Patterson and Carter Rugg sent Aidan Tripp down the right wing and Tripp’s shot from the boards put the 16U’s back in the lead.
